from the sketchbook of Colonel A. F. Weddington, USMC (Retired) Copyright 2007
Each book contains bound Certification page with original number and signature by the artist/author. A like-numbered 'Certificate of Authenticity,' noting distinguishing characteristics, accompanies each book.
The 9 x 12 coffee table book includes more than 240 pages with nearly 100 sketches accompanied by short "word sketches" chronicling U. S. Marine Corps Recruit Training--based on Colonel Weddington's nearly three decades of service and three years as a Series Commander, Battalion Operations Officer and Company Commander leading Drill Instructors at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, SC, as they "Made Marines." Former Drill Instructors who reviewed the book said they were struck with emotion--recalling recruit training as both recruit and DI. There's not been a book like this one--by a Marine for Marines--documenting and telling the story of tranforming young men and women into U. S. Marines--from yellow footprints to earning the coveted eagle, globe, and anchor.

On "SEEING" & Painting
(An Interdisciplinary Perspective) Copyright 2007
This 11 x 8 1/2 portrait format book is 163 pages of intrigue as Andy weaves concepts from philosophy, psychology, communications, and General Semantics into his own ideas on "seeing" and painting, and offers insight as to how artists--painters--"see" then paint. Text is supported with more than 40 full-color reproductions of Andy's paintings. A great book that had the editors raving and wanting more and has readers--artists and non-artist alike--looking at everything through fresh eyes.
A word from the editors...
"Andy Weddington, California resident and painter, has written a gem. 'On "SEEING" & Painting' is an eye-opener--a thought-provoking work unlike anything you'll likely read. Painter or not--there's something for everyone in this book. Andy introduces the art of "seeing"--what you have not noticed before--and offers four decades of painting experience. His relaxed style is refreshing--he entertains, quietly "teaches," and steadily builds reader enthusiasm and confidence. If you have never painted, or even considered it, you just may find yourself seriously tempted to give it a whirl--why not? Go "see" then paint!"
